During the ceremony, held last night at the IFEMA Municipal Palace in Madrid, the actress Carmen Maura received the Platinum of Honor for her long career. On stage, before the standing audience, he threatened to “cry”. The actress thanked her for the affection received from her in each experience in Ibero-America. “I want to go back and that airplanes make me enormously lazy,” she recalled. “I thank my guardian angel the day I decided to be an actress. She helped me, among other things, not to go crazy, “she explained, and provoking laughter, she argued that you can play any role” as a murderer “, and then” quietly return home “. The Madrilenian advised “patience” to the non-winning nominees. “I, Goyas, don’t want any more,” she confessed, “because I’m overwhelmed by being here. Lucky that they have sat me down next to Javier Bardem”. And although she had said goodbye to her, she again “apologized for being so nervous.”

Among the musical performances, with Lali Espósito, Pedro Fernández, Rozalén and Kany García, the appearance of Ana Belén was surprising, which was not announced. The presentation was carried out by the actor (and now director, he was a candidate in the section for best documentary) Miguel Ángel Muñoz and the Argentine Lali Espósito. The scenery reminded the people of Charm, and in the background people could be seen making juices or sitting at tables on a terrace, a detail that distracted the viewer. In addition, the criterion of awarding prizes en bloc did not help the cleanliness of the retransmission either. Just as faded was the tribute to Ukraine, made with cardboard raised from the stalls by the attendees… but not all were in place, and the giant poster of “Iberoamerica for peace” in blue and yellow was not perceived clearly.
